Spin&Gold ELO: ratings for spin players
Starting from the New Year, a ranking system has appeared in Spin&Gold at PokerOK. Now in the regular spins you can earn a rating and compete with other players.
Points are awarded according to the ELO rating system: a similar one is used in chess, checkers and some eSports games. Only the fact of victory or loss and the rating of opponents are taken into account – the limits played or the multipliers hit do not affect the rating in any way.
There are 7 ranks in total:
- E: 1,200 points
- D: 1,500 points
- C: 2,000 points
- B: 3,000 points
- A: 4,000 points
- Master: 5,000 points
- Grand Master: top 100 players
The level cannot be lowered, ratings do not affect the selection of opponents. Any spins are taken into account, except for VIP games. There are no monetary bonuses for the rating.
You can keep track of your own level and the best players in the Spin&Gold lobby ("ELO Rating" tab). The data is updated daily at 0:00 GMT

Mobile Application News
GG Network app gains momentum
Traffic in the ClubGG app is growing by leaps and bounds! Over 10 clubs with unique traffic and rakeback up to 55% are already available to GT+ players. A few new items:
OG POKER. A new major Asian union where they play only hold'em at limits from NL7 to NL650. There are HU tables. Peak time is in the early afternoon GMT due to predominantly Malaysian traffic. Rakeback from 45%.
Club Gambol. Private club from USA with mixed traffic. Situational play in PLO and PLO5 at medium and high stakes. Rakeback from 30%.
ClubGG is great for exploring the world of mobile applications: there is a desktop client, so you don't have to deal with emulators. Tables open in separate windows and look familiar, trackers are supported.
In two large alliances, Panamericana and RGS, anonymous tables have practically been erased: before everyone was anonymous, now only a few remain. This makes it much easier to game select!
And PPPoker has a new Indian alliance with a very profitable game at high limits in Omaha. Access through the Poker Legends2 club, decent conditions: 45% rakeback, 1 chip = 1.0279 USD (85 INR). The game is played at the $5-$10 and $10-$20 tables.
It will be possible to extract additional benefits from these clubs with the help of the Ladder promotion, which has been extended until April 2. Recall the conditions: the more rake you win back in a month, the higher the percentage of additional rakeback. Since January 2, the largest alliance, Diamond, has also been participating in it.
- $1,000 per month – +3% rakeback
- $2,000 per month – +4% rakeback
- $3,000 per month – +5% rakeback
GT+ offers full technical support (we will set up the software and explain everything), deposits and cashouts by any means (including with the help of cards from Russian banks) and guarantees for deposits and profit.
